‘A demonic agenda’: How sex ed became the target of anti-LGBT groups at the National Stadium

 |

CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATORS AND anti-LGBT campaigners reacted angrily to reports that the Irish Athletic Boxing Association (IABA) is investigating the use of the National Stadium by a Christian group earlier this week. The IABA, which owns the purpose-built boxing stadium in Dublin, announced the probe just hours before an event about sex education in schools aimed at ‘concerned’ parents. The Journal reported on Tuesday that questions were being raised at political level about whether the event complied with the boxing association’s equality charter, which explicitly references the LGBT community. The event specifically targeted the teaching of issues around gender and same-sex marriage which will be included – among other new modules – on the Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE) curriculum.
